Daryl Gregory writes genre-mixing novels, short stories, and the occasional comic book. His latest novel is Afterparty (Tor, April 2014), and his novella about horror story survivors and small group therapy, "We are All Completely Fine" (Tachyon), appeared in August 2014.
His first novel was the fantasy / science fiction / horror mash-up Pandemonium (Del Rey, 2008), which won the Crawford Award and was short-listed for the World Fantasy Award, the Shirley Jackson Award, the Locus Awards, and the Mythopoeic Award. Gregory's second novel, the hard SF Southern gothic murder mystery, The Devil's Alphabet (Del Rey, 2009), was a finalist for the Philip K. Dick award and was named one of the best SF books of the year by Publishers Weekly. Raising Stony Mayhall (Del Rey, 2011), a zombildungsroman about the nicest undead boy in the world, was named one of the best SF books of the year by Library Journal. His next book is Afterpary (Tor, winter 2014), a near-future SFnovel about neuroscience and the numinous.
Some of his short fiction was collected in Unpossible and Other Stories (Fairwood Press, 2011), which was named one of the best SF books of the year by Publishers Weekly. Many of those stories appeared in F&SF and Asimov's and were reprinted in various year's best collections. The story "Second Person, Present Tense" won the 2005 Asimov's Readers Choice Award for novelette and was a finalist for the SLF Fountain Award and for the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award.
His comic book work includes the Planet of the Apes series and Dracula: The Company of Monsters mini-series for Boom! Studios, and the graphic novelThe Secret Battles of Genghis Khan for IDW.
He lives in a rapidly emptying nest in State College, PA.
